    Jan 19 2012: To answer the question: I would.
    I love trying new things, for me this is happiness!

    - if it's delicious AND
    - all kind of meat varieties can be produced in vitro AND
    - I would be assured that there are no more harmful substances in the meat like in the regular one AND
    - it wouldn't be much more expensive than the regular

    THEN I think I would prefer eating the in vitro one for ethical reasons.
